Alonso’s emotional comeback win at the European Grand Prix last Sunday has finally set one driver apart from the pack in the most tightly contested Formula One season in history.
Alonso steered his Ferrari from an 11-place start to a dramatic victory at Valencia to become the first driver to win two races this year, opening up a 20-point gap over his nearest challenger, Red Bull’s Mark Webber.
Now the Spaniard and his team are trying to focus on the British GP on July 8, when Alonso will seek to repeat his triumph at Silverstone last season.
Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali says “these 25 points will definitely not go to our heads. We are well aware how things can change in the blink of an eye.”
